Making an impact one home at a time -- Mothering Matters! 

Groups for mothers of infants and preschoolers to connect weekly and grow in friendship, faith, and family life.  

Mothering Matters Small Groups are groups of 8-10 mothers who meet weekly to grow in friendships, faith and family life. These groups follow a curriculum rotation that includes a focused look at becoming a godly woman, wife and mother.

Where do Mothering Matters Small Groups meet?  Mothering Matters Groups meet in homes around the Metro area.  Typically one of the group members volunteers to open her home and her heart to serve as the group's hostess. Children are welcome and childcare is determined by each group and its members.

All groups are currently on a break over the summer.  Registration for new group members will begin in August. Stay tuned!
